A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on February 4

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 25 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The ongoing war of words between Iran and the US was the top story today. US President Donald Trump’s anti-Iran tweets and the Iranian Foreign Minister’s response received great coverage.

The ban on Iranian citizens introduced by Trump and Iran’s reciprocal response also remained a top story as Iran’s Foreign Ministry barred US wrestlers from attending Iran Wrestling World Cup in reaction to the unfair ban on Iranian nationals.

The extreme cold and deadly avalanche in Iran were also widely covered. Many people have been entrapped under the snow, and three have lost their lives in an avalanche in northern Iran.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines:
